SystemRescueCd

Last Update: 2019-04-11 06:22 UTC


SystemRescueCd is an Arch-based Linux system on a bootable CD-ROM or USB drive, designed for repairing a system and data after a crash. It also aims to provide an easy way to carry out administration tasks on a computer, such as creating and editing hard disk partitions. It contains many useful system utilities (GNU Parted, PartImage, FSTools) and some basic ones (editors, Midnight Commander, network tools). It aims to be very easy to use. The kernel of the system supports all of today's most important file systems, including ext2, ext3, ext4, ReiserFS, Reiser4FS, btrfs, XFS, JFS, VFAT, NTFS, ISO9660, as well as network file systems, such as Samba and NFS.

Popularity (hits per day): 12 months: 136 (70), 6 months: 184 (44), 3 months: 175 (44), 4 weeks: 155 (45), 1 week: 169 (41)

Average visitor rating: 7.5/10 from 10 review(s).

5.3.2 was perfect and had a ~560MB image fitting on a CD. It was fine booting via PXE, NFS, TFTP, HTTP in a LAN.
But now we have a SystemRescueDVD image of ~890MB !!!
Is it the price to transition from Gentoo OpenRC to ArchLinux Systemd ?
It has been a real swiss army knife for many years but now it is sadly over for me.
5.3.2 should be forked.

Not bad. Was hoping for more of a competitor to Knoppix or Parted Magic. This isn't it.

This CD has been part of my last-ditch toolset for several years. Brilliant for the job of rescuing systems that are experiencing problems.
Two points on why my score for this is 5 and not 10:
1. systemd
2. 888MB - my planet is fresh out of 900MB CDs
